Nice shop, no doubt, but those limited by either funds or space can still enjoy the world of woodworking. My 2 car garage has an almost complete shop on wheels. Move out the cars and table saw, chop saw, planer, jointer, router table, drill press, folding tables, disc sander, oscillating sander, belt sanders and all the hand tools I need. Dust collector is a shop vac that connects to each dust maker as needed. So don't envy the top class, we can have as much satisfaction . Patrick

Great shop! I really enjoy looking at shops like Dave's. Shops like this are inspiring! I like to take bits and pieces (ideas) from others for my own. Capitalism and success are what made this country! Go Dave and others!

Nice shop. There are NOT many of us that can afford to have such a wonderful shop. If I had money like you bro I would never flaunt my shop to all the suffering bastards out there. God for you, but what-ever. I do what I can do with my credit cards. I look at shops like you guys have and want to get sick at the disposable income some people have. It's not fair bro.

What a wonderful place to work! Mine is a 18x22 foot building with an attached carport. It's about 1/2 the size I really would like to have but at 70 years of age and only being retired a couple of years (and thus, very new to woodworking) it is my sanctuary. Again WOW!

Though I dream of a shop my dream is a bit more modest. The homes I am looking for west of you in the greater megalopolis of LA would be prohibitively expensive for a shop of such generous dimensions. There are items in your shop that I would like to take a closer look at particularly the mobile height adjusting table.
